GPB’s Happy Healthy Kids campaign, in partnership with the Aetna Foundation, is hitting the road this fall to help raise awareness about obesity.

Obesity is a serious health concern for everyone — even children. According to the Centers for Disease Control, obese children and adolescents are at risk for health problems, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and Type 2 diabetes, during their youth and as adults. Obese children are more likely to become obese as adults. In Georgia, the medical costs associated with adult obesity were $2.1 billion in 2003. According to the 2007 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, 18% of Georgia youth (grades 9-12) are overweight and another 14% are obese.

GPB’s Happy Healthy Kids campaign seeks to raise awareness about the dangers of childhood obesity and provide resources showcasing how healthy diets and regular physical activity can help prevent the risk of developing chronic health problems.

Each year, GPB broadcasts more than 3,000 hours of quality children’s programming, and our commitment to make a meaningful difference in the lives of Georgia children, families and caregivers extends beyond broadcast to include life-enriching supplemental programming resources, such as information about health-related matters. Aetna provides health benefits to more than 600,000 members in Georgia.

Doc Neil, a.k.a Dr. Neil Shulman, is an Associate Professor at the Emory University School of Medicine, as well as an author and popular children’s entertainer.
